Co-UDlabs hosts first Early-Stage Researchers Seminar

On June 27 and 28, 2022, Co-UDlabs hosted at the University of A Coruña its first Early-Stage Researchers Seminar (ESRS), an academic training tool that our project has designed as a platform for young academics, researchers, and practitioners to share the floor with senior experts and receive feedback on and guidance for their research routes and interests.

The first ESRS was linked to Co-UDlabs’ first General Assembly (June 29-30, 2022), the first opportunity for members of the whole consortium to meet, and a way to familiarise the junior members of our partnership with the aims, goals, and instruments of Co-UDlabs.

The event was fully hybrid, with a significant presence in the room and a very valuable contribution from several partners and academics online. Tuesday, June 28, the ESRS’ busiest day, gathered 17 participants with nine presentations from five different institutions.
